We all see how MT gradually changes the role of translator, creating niches for new, yet unseen professions. But machine learning and artificial intelligence reach far beyond translation as such, affecting the processes around it as well.
Localization project managers often burn themselves out by daily performing tons — and counting — of routine operations. Can AI help by making the project manager’s work less stressful? Which of these operations are “robotizable”, and which will need the involvement of people in the foreseeable future? Finally, how to find the balance between automation and human approach? In this presentation, we will raise questions that we have been pondering about throughout the years of researching, developing, and doing business with some of the most forward-looking industry players.
